Met with a client while in the
Lafayette area, and this place came highly recommended. Staff was very friendly and food was great. Very nice atmosphere. I will definitely make this a usual spot when in the area."

I dine at Jolie's two or more
times a month and found in the last few weeks the food has been even better. I am told there is a new chef and she has outshined the previous chef. I have noted a couple of things changed but not necessarily for the better. The crab cakes are great but noted the overabundance of greenery and less crabmeat overall. Nice to have the bone marrow cut length wise...smart move. One comment regarding the service, service is not consistant. Bread and butter should be brought automatically and not requested. The waiters also need to be well versed in the menu. Not sure is not an answer. Service is stronger the busier the restaurant is..... Friendly staff."

This place is very nice. It is
very clean. The hostess and waitress we had were both very welcoming and the food was excellent! The oysters although did not come raw on a half shell and cooked only were delicious as well as the Prince Edward mussels. This place has 5 star service and food! I would definitely recommend it to my friends."
Dined on 2/18/2014
The food was delicious! Everything
from appetizers to entrees. I recommend the mussels! Yummy!"

First time to visit the
restaurant: found it beautiful, relaxing and romantic. Each course was on par with the ambiance. Was recommended by friends over another, newer restaurant which is currently more en vogue. It did not disappoint."

The parking lot was completely
empty at 11 am on a Sunday. Unheard of in Lafayette. The restaurant we usually go to has at least an hour wait and most restaurants that serve brunch don't take reservations at all. We chose Jolie's because we thought it might be quieter and it was my mom's 75th birthday. We had four brunch entrees, shrimp and grits, egg frittata, scallops and eggs and crab benedict. All under seasoned and overcooked. We didn't drink and for four people, three small ladies and a man, the bill was 140.00 before tip. I don't blink at spending that at brunch for just my husband and I, but I was embarrassed at the poor quality of food and so disappointed that I had chosen Jolie's to celebrate such a special day."

I've eaten here several times now
and it's always fantastic. Seriously, everything on the menu tastes amazing. I went with groups of friends a couple times and we just shared all the entrees and they were all great. You have to try the tuna steak at least once, it's the best (in my opinion) but no matter what you won't be disappointed."
Dined on 1/14/2014
Jolie's is one of our favorite
place in Lafayette to visit. Normally, we would have no complaints about the visit, but service was not good today."
Dined on 2/1/2014
My husband and I are always
pleased with the dining experience at Jolie! The food is always fresh! The atmosphere is pleasing! And the service is a professional, yet personal feeling! Great place for a nice dining experience!"

Great waiter, good food, good
time. Enjoyed it and recommend it. I would rate it 4.5 stars if I could."

This was a wonderful place for my
husband and I to have a romantic New Year's Eve dinner date. We were impressed by everything: food, cocktails, atmosphere and service. We will be going back in the near future."
Dined on 12/31/2013
Some of the most unique and tasty
fish dishes I've ever enjoyed. Zapp's crusted drum and yellow fine tuna were exquisite as was the wine!"

Great service that anticipated our
every need. Surrounded by George Rodrigue paintings of cultural and historical note. Delicious, fresh food! A lovely experience!"
Dined on 12/26/2013
This restaurant has been
inconsistent in last 6 months. 3 most recent visits have Dissapointed with 4 less than delicious entres. 2 visits ago sauce for raw oysters was an additional charge. Have never experienced this."
Dined on 12/20/2013
Excellent food and service. Our
first time to eat at Jolie's but definitely not our last."
Dined on 12/14/2013
I have eaten at some of t finest
restaurants in the south. This is not one of them. The chef loves the bell pepper. We ordered the oysters ...big chewy and the bienville was pasty densely rich and awful. We searched through the menu for something else without the bell pepper. That took 3 trips to the kitchen. I ordered the shrimp and grits were good but the roux was far too rich and not great. The Louie was supposed to be "baby" kales but they were "braising" kales - thick chewy and nothing tender except the crab meat and big /huge slabs of a blandly fried eggplant. Our wine arrived at the end of the meal. I overheard someone at another table who was obviously a local say they loved the hamburger there -"
Dined on 11/27/2013
Very good food and nice servers.
Loved that they used local farmers and purveyors. Made us a great non-alcoholic cocktail!"
Dined on 11/21/2013
I recently returned to Lafayette,
after living in Portland OR for many years. Portland is known nationwide for its great restaurants. Jolie's is comparable to the Portland restaurant scene. I will definitely return. Service, ambience, and food were excellent."
Dined on 11/19/2013
For a romantic dinner Jolie's can
hardly be beaten. The ambiance is great and the restaurant is usually quiet. It has been around for a while but is still undiscovered, possibly because the menu sounds eclectic. Their fish entrees are usually great, last week it was black grouper with a delicious generous portion. Their salmon is also excellent and the appetizer oysters Jolie are as good as any Bienville you can find."
Dined on 11/16/2013
It's good to know that Jolie's is
open onSaturday and Sundays for brunch. The dining room and patio were full of people who apparently were loving their food and experience. Wait staff is excellent and the farm to table products add full flavor to all the dishes. We loved the special little biscuits served as a on table treat. Highly recommend."
Dined on 11/17/2013
Out of 4 things that we ordered
(main courses) Did not know about any specials for the evening (server did not say) Wrong food brought to our table No apology from server Server very rude and clearly did not want to be serving us at all"
Dined on 11/16/2013
With Jolie's, you get an art
gallery along with the restaurant. Kind of off the beaten path if you're looking for a stop along I-10, but not hard to find and worth the effort. Staff was attentive and friendly. I thought the gumbo was okay. The BarBQ Shrimp and Grits was very good. I'm picky about grits and these grits were spot on. The sauce was New Orleans style with lots of herbs and spices. I had a peek at what other diners were eating, and I will likely visit again to try other dishes."
Dined on 11/15/2013
Food and service was excellent. It
was very nice that the manager, Chelsie, had came visit the table for small conversation and great advice for wine. She is awesome!"
Dined on 11/8/2013
Great place and amazing farm fresh
food. Largest local farmer list ice seen in a restaurant."
Dined on 11/3/2013
If you have a slightly more
sophisticated palette and love good food, this is the place for you! We started with Roasted bone marrow & foie gras, both of which were sublime. An excellent Sazerac cocktail as a digestif rounded the meal nicely! Nice ambience in this restaurant, and even though it is big, it felt cosy."
Dined on 10/30/2013
We loved everything about this
experience! The restaurant itself was gorgeous - the George Rodrigue art was a feast for the eyes! Our server was very knowledgable and was happy to give us suggestions from the menu. My drink from the bar was superb - exactly the way I like it! The crab cake appetizer was excellent, and could have been the main course because it was a generous size. Seafood salad was great, desert was a brownie with peanut butter ice cream. All was fantastic! Can't wait to go back!"
Dined on 10/24/2013
This is the statement that drove
me to want to try this restaurant. The salad was a real treat with fresh kale an tomatoes. I would visit again."

We visit Lafayette every year for
Festivals Acadien. Last year we had an excellent dinner at Jolie's, so we tried it again this year. It was even better. Barbecued shrimp appetizer was outstanding. Gumbo was very good. Duck entree was tough, but fish stew was wonderful. Breads were very good, and desserts likewise. Good wine list. Original Rodrigue paintings throughout the restaurant added to the atmosphere."
Dined on 10/12/2013
Food was good, but I found that it
was rather short on entry selections. Service was outstanding, place is elegant, and overall a nice place to go. We only had lunch, so the evening selections maybe broader."

This is one of our favorite places
to dine before attending a show in the Oil Center or on UL campus. Also, having Celiac, I feel comfortable eating gluten free there,"

We were celebrating our 25th
wedding anniversary. As we walked through the doors we were greeted by a smiling and personable lady who made us immediately know we had made the right choice. Just as we were seated by one of the friendly managers,our server, Zachary, who was friendly and informative about the menu and remained at the table for conversation for just the appropriate amount of time showed up at our table.Our meal was exquisite and served in a timely manner. The staff created a dessert plate that was unique ."
Dined on 10/6/2013
We were quiet disappointed in the
amount of fish served on the "special" for the $27 price. have been several times and find inconsistent. Sometimes very good and some times disappointed."
Dined on 9/25/2013
Nice setting, better than average
service,,,, on the other side of the coin, the food is only average and is overpriced. I ordered the brisket. It was tough, fatty, and (without the sauce) was generally tasteless. The food needs a major makeover."

CUltural indicitive to our
culture. Can be a dressing occassion or a casual one. Love going threre w/ group or just a date."
Dined on 9/21/2013
If you are looking for a truly
exceptional dining experience then Jolie's is the place to go. The interior of the restaurant is absolutely beautiful and the service is exceptional. Our waitress was attentive and knowledgable and took her time and answered all our questions. The food was delicious and fresh. This restaurant prides itself on serving local farm to table ingredients which is exactly what you will get. It was local cuisine of gourmet quality. Just wonderful! If you ever want to treat yourself to a special evening with special food, you must try Jolie's."

My best friend and I celebrated
our birthdays with a night out at Jolie's! Everything was wonderful! Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable of the menu, observant, and sweet! The cocktails, dinner, and dessert were delicious! Overall great time!"
